I purchased a similar plant under the name Dypsis coriacea. Beautiful specimen, at about 3 feet tall the stem is no wider than a sharpy, and it's leaves are beginning to divide. A real beauty.

obviously this is not the true name of this palm, but a locational name (from some place in Madagascar called Monalaingo), but until it is properly identified, it will be called this in cultivation. Great looking understory palm wtih an incredibly dark red new leaf. I have this palm and it's slow, but does fairly well as a house plant (needs to be misted a lot or leaf tips dry out). Seems to have some cold tolerance, but I haven't pushed it yet.
